As a child, Dewan-Tatum moved frequently; she mentioned in an interview that she lived in seven cities before reaching the seventh grade.
While attending high school at Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson, Maryland, Dewan was a varsity cheerleader.
“He said he had the chance to be free and he couldn’t stop thinking about me,” Jenna remembered, laughing the laugh of a woman who has brilliantly plotted her way into the pants of a fine young gentleman.
“He’s in a sombrero, underwear and Ugg boots and said, ‘Let’s do this.’” Then, they did it.
In November 2009, she appeared in the straight-to-DVD comedy American Virgin alongside Rob Schneider.
In March 2011, Dewan was cast in the NBC pilot of The Playboy Club.
She is known for her role as Nora Clark in the 2006 film Step Up.
“I said, ‘Well look, if you want to date other people and be free that’s totally fine,” she told Degeneres. You have to figure out what you want because I want a relationship.’” Her ultimatum — which I must admit was pretty legit — worked in her favor: Three days later, Tatum came a knockin’ on her hotel door.She was Freya Beauchamp on the Lifetime series Witches of East End and as of 2016 was playing the recurring role of Lucy Lane in Supergirl.Her parents divorced when she was young and her mother remarried Claude Smith.She went to University of Southern California and was a member of the California Gamma Chapter of Pi Beta Phi.In 2006, Dewan co-starred with Channing Tatum in Step Up, as well as starring in Take the Lead that same year.In May 2011, NBC picked up the series for a full season.She portrayed the role of Bunny Janie, a provocative Playboy bunny who works at a Playboy Club in Chicago in 1961.The couple has been together ever since, wedding in 2009 and welcoming their daughter, Everly, in 2013. So yeah, they’re still charming — at least as far as celebrity couples go.Jenna recently spilled on their sex life, admitting that yes, they do have sex sometimes and also, yes, she resents being asked whether or not she keeps it fresh, because that’s a rude question. Along with friends Reid Carolin, Adam Martingano, Brett Rodriguez and husband Channing Tatum, Dewan started a production company called 33and Out Productions.Their first production is a documentary called Earth Made of Glass that follows Rwandan President Paul Kagame and genocide survivor Jean-Pierre Sagahutu.
